How to avoid the URL Office 365 Exchange Autodiscover in your inbox 

By Mareike Blum, (Comments: 0)

If you are running Office 365 and want to avoid the Autodiscover URL in your inbox, there are a few things you can do. First, you need to make sure that your Autodiscover -URL is set to the correct domain. Usually, the domain that opens automatically is the same as the one where the mailbox is stored. If it is different, the reason could be that you are using a different web service for your email, such as Office 365. Once you have the URL, you can test it. To do this, click the Autodiscover URL for Testing button and enter your user credentials. Check the box next to the Autodiscover service to make sure the setting is correct. You can also see the Autodiscover URL under the Log tab. Another reason Autodiscover might fail is if you are using a different host than your current provider.

Autodiscover in Microsoft Outlook Exchange

When you change host providers, your Autodiscover URL must also change. However, it is important to note that the two Autodiscover URLs for the same account are different. The Autodiscover URL is a key component of the Microsoft 365 configuration. It allows your Outlook client to access the features of your Exchange server. You can access unified messaging, cached exchange mode, and offline address book. If the URL is changed, it causes problems with your Outlook client configuration. Sometimes the Autodiscover service does not work for your Microsoft 365 accounts. In this case, you can fix the problem with an internal solution, but this is not recommended. Another option is to create a name record. This will help you get Autodiscover working again. To do this, open Microsoft Outlook -Web -Apps and collect the Autodiscover URL. This is a tedious and time-consuming task. Besides your mailbox URL, you can also check the Autodiscover -URL of your Exchange -Online account. If your Autodiscover URL is incorrect, you may need to update and configure the server. For older versions of Outlook, Autodiscover may not work. In this case, you can contact Microsoft's Help and Recovery Assistant. If your Autodiscover URL is not set up correctly, you can troubleshoot by running the test Outlookwebservices CMDLet. You can also try to access the Exchange server using a valid email address. The CMDLET can be found in C:Program FilesmicrosoFtexchange Serverv14Scripts.
